Not One Day More National #ToriesOUT Demonstration LONDON
Sat 1 July 2017
07:00 – 22:00 BST
Leeds TUC transport
£5.90 – £11.21
The Coach will leave at 7am from West Yorkshire Playhouse, Playhouse Square Leeds, LS2 7UP and return for approx 10.00 pm.
We will arrive in London around 12.00pm and depart 5pm (meet at Tate Britain Millbank ,Westminster, London SW1P 4RG 4.45pm).
The Election result represents a rejection of Tory policies. They no they have no mandate; already the Government has suggested they may have to ease their austerity plans because of huge opposition. We need to make sure the full force of that opposition is felt. If we continue to mobilise in huge numbers we can deepen the crisis for the Conservatives and force big concessions on the NHS, education, housing and jobs. There is already talk of another General Election in the next few months which would likely see the Tories loose further support and be unable to form a Government.
Protests have sprung up across the country and there are many more planned in the next few days, we’re supporting all actions and events against Theresa May’s attempt at forming a Government.
On Saturday 1 July we want to invite everyone – from campaigns and community groups all over the country, from the trade unions, from political parties, and any individual – to come together in one massive show of strength. We’re marching against another 5 years of a Tory Government committed to austerity, cuts and privatisation. And we’re marching for a decent health service, education system, housing, jobs and living standards for all. Join us, bring your friends and spread the word.
Join the #JC4PM Labour members’ bloc on this demo and demand #ToriesOut and back #JC4PM.

They don’t Represent Us – #ToriesOut #NoDUP – Saturday 17th June 2.30 – 3.30 Leeds Art Gallery
On Saturday 17th June, please join me and our community in Leeds to protest the Tory/DUP partnership and show that the UK does not accept the regressive terms of the DUP in UK Parliament.
This protest will be completely peaceful, it will be child friendly, we encourage everyone to keep a good positive attitude and enjoy each others company in safety whilst demonstrating.
Please bring your signs, flags, banners, your voices and be heard.
The DUP in a nutshell:
3. Anti-Abortion. (yes even in cases of rape)
4. Anti-Womens Rights.…
5. Supported publicly and politically by the UDA also know as the red hand commando. A terrorist organisation.
Theresa May has chosen to pair with DUP in a desperate attempt to remain in power and this is something we can not accept as it breaches the Good Friday agreement and can shatter a period of peace in Northern Ireland
The full horror of the fire at the Grenfell Tower is yet to unfold but we do know that there has been fatalities, serious injuries and hundreds of people are left destitute and in despair.
Once again our emergency services have been called upon to display the selflessness and heroism we are sadly becoming all too accustomed to. Unite will be sending its solidarity to our colleague unions to express our very deep thanks for all that they do to in the name of public service.
But we also need your help. We need you to donate to the fund to support the residents of Grenfell Tower.
Unite has members who live in Grenfell Tower. We are doing our utmost to locate them, and to offer every support to them and their neighbours. Our community members are already mobilising collections for essentials such as clothing, food and toiletries.
Clearly there are very many questions to be asked about the cause of last night’s blaze, and when the time is appropriate this union will be redoubling its efforts to put decent, safe social housing back on the political agenda. There are thousands of such towers around the UK. We must ensure that they pose no risk to human life.
But for today we need to rally around our fellow members and this devastated community.
Can you or your branch make a donation to help those affected by this horror through these very dark times?
If so, please donate to
Sort code 60 83 01
With very many thanks
Unite the union
GENERAL ELECTION PART 2 – STUDENT VOTE REGISTRATION
The Brilliant, Encouraging and Inspiring General Election Result for Jeremy Corbyn – after everything they said, and the Coup, and the shameful personal attacks, and the diabolical Mainstream Media onslaught, has some of us feeling Re-Energised, Re-Invigorated and Fired Up for General Election Part 2.
I’ve been fair Gleeful – hooting with laughter even!
In case of a September Election Students who Graduate at the end of this term will need to re-register to vote at the address to which they will be moving to, as a matter of some urgency. Those returning for the new term need to decide how best to anticipate a vote. Should they arrange to have a vote in their university constituencies – in which case they’ll each need to apply to do so with their upcoming term-time address. Or if preferred, apply for a postal vote for your home constituency.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ALWAYS REGISTERED TO VOTE AT ALL TIMES.
